How did you get into roller derby?

I found out about SVRG back in May of 2007. For my birthday I went to see B.A.D. play and some girls from SVRG where there representing. I was completely hooked after the first jam and wanted to get involved as soon as possible. About a week later I went to the rink and bought a cheap pair of skates and started going to open skate. About mid-June I went to my first practice and never looked back.

What is your derby name and number and how did you decide on it?

Patty Hearse # '74 – When I was younger I was intrigued by the kidnapping story of Patty Hearst from the 70’s. Look it up!

I changed the Hearst to Hearse because I like dark and creepy things and because my husband and I own a Cadillac Hearse that we drive around town.

Congratulations to Beetlejules for being CJ Skater of the Month!

What is your derby name and number and how did you decide on it?
I was brainstorming with my roommates one day while hanging out. I’ve been called Jules most of my life and I wanted to incorporate it somehow into my Derby name. The TV was on and the dinner scene in Beetlejuice was playing. I immediately thought of Beetlejules and it stuck! For my number, I was born on January 3rd  and I’ve always considered 3 my lucky number, so I decide to go for that.
